The Division is officially less than a week away – and Ubisoft is giving players a heads up as what to expect when the servers go live.
Those servers will go live at 00:01AM Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT), and that’s for everyone – whether you’re a normal player or games press, meaning day one reviews will not be possible for the heavily-multiplayer focused game.
“Since it’s impossible for us to populate the servers in a way that would adequately replicate playing The Division on launch day, reviewers will start playing the game along with everyone else when it’s released on March 8 – after the servers go live officially and globally,” Ubisoft writes. “We anticipate there may be some impressions posted online within the first few days of launch that were based on experiences with The Division Beta, and we look forward to seeing streams, videos, and opinions that provide accounts of final, in-game conditions.”
Those who have pre-ordered digital versions of the game will be able to begin preloading their titles on Xbox One on Thursday, March 3 at 6PM CET / 9AM PT for PC (Steam/Uplay); and March 6 at 00:01AM local time on PlayStation 4.
